    ESB Customer Offer - Energy Efficient Appliances

    Save €50 on selected Bosch domestic appliances, plus you'll be in with a chance to WIN €3,000 worth of energy efficient products.

    When you purchase a selected Bosch energy efficient domestic appliance, using the voucher from your ESB Customer Supply electricity bill, you'll get €50 off the retail price (from participating retail outlets)

    Bosch domestic appliances have become more efficient by using less water and by allowing larger loads of laundry and dishes to be cleaned and dried, while using less electricity. This means that you'll not only save money when you make your purchase, but also every year thereafter, via your electricity bill, and inevitable water charges. You'll also have the added bonus of knowing that you're doing your bit for the environment.

    And as if all of that wasn't enough, you'll be in with a chance to WIN €3,000 worth of Bosch energy efficient products, from the same selected range.

    Full details of the products on offer, and how to get in touch with your local participating retail outlet, are available on the "promotions" page of this website.

    This offer is available to ESB customer supply customers only, using the voucher they received (or will receive) in the post, with their electricity bill.

  • Sisters doing it for themselves

    Sisters doing it for themselves (Siobhan Maguire - The Sunday Times)

    Sick of waiting for the man in your life to put up a shelf? Join the growing band of female DIY-ers…………

    Both practical and theory based, women only DIY classes are now available at Dun Laoghaire College. Interest in the courses has been strong with women from the thirties to fifties registering for the course.  A survey published in September by Bosch Green Power Tools found the 78% of British women embark on a home improvement project by themselves. The research shows that 72% believe women are better home improvers because they have more patience than men. Almost half of the females surveyed identified their creativity as a great asset when fixing up the home. But the majority surveyed-68%- take to the tool box for financial reasons.

    Origo see these trends mirrored in the Irish Market with an increasing number of females enquiring about our Bosch Green range of products. With the introduction of smaller and lighter power tools to the market, for example the Bosch IXO, a light weight high powered screwdriver and our new range of Bosch compact Drills and Jigsaw recently launched, power tools have never been easier to use.

    Having attended many DIY shows we see an increasing number of ladies seeking DIY advice and wanting to add to their existing tool kit. Of course power tools are more accessible now than ever, DIY Superstores such as Woodies and Homevalue Hardware are selling power tools in the same space as soft furnishing allowing ladies to realize they can do more than just select the shelving and flat pack furniture, they can get the job done themselves from start to finish.

  • Bosch latest toaster and kettle

    Bosch latest toaster and kettle

    Bosch latest toaster and kettle combination is simply the most stylish set you can buy, with chic, strong lines, finishes and detailing.

    But it is under the surface too: unlike ordinary kettles, this model has four different temperature settings, because different hot drinks need different temperatures to release their perfect aroma and taste.

    Water can be kept to and ideal 80°C after boiling for baby formula, thanks to the kettles keep warm function, which maintains a selected temperature for up to 30 minutes.

    This Bosch kettles distinctive, eco friendly design saves up to 66% energy by boiling only the water you need, thanks to the unique single-cup measure (0.25l) of water.

    The kettle base houses an information rich, easy-to-use control panel with the power on/off switch and temperature settings an LED screen shows the water temperature as it increases.

    The cordless marvel’s other features include as acoustic “ready” signal- think of is as a friendly kettle-whistle for the 21st century! The lid opens at the press of a button, there is a removable stainless steel scale-filter, a water-window with measurements in cups and litres on both sides, a 360°base, a concealed stainless steel heating element, automatic lift-off switch-off and cable storage.

    Add to these great features a double-wall, cool-touch housing and soft-touch, anti-slip handle, plus automatic shut-off and boil-dry over head protection.

    The new Bosch toaster is as equally clever: beautiful on the outside and smart on the inside.

    An advanced new mirror heating system uses for quartz-glass elements to provide even and gentle heat. But that’s not all: a special sensor measurers the temperature inside the toasting chamber and automatically adjusts the toast cycle! You can select your perfect setting on the digital display and it will remember just how you like your toast!

    This set is available in stylish whit or black with brushed stainless steel trim.

  • Bosch - partner for the future

    Bosch - partner for the future of the workshop (Auto Trade Volume 5 2010)

    Bosch, represented in Ireland by Origo, took up residence in Hall 8 and the outdoor area in front of Hall 8.

    The theme of this year’s exhibition was  “The Partner for the Future of the Workshop” and as the only “single source supplier of diagnostic expertise and spare parts,” Bosch Automotive Aftermarket is more than able to live up to this claim.

    The company's stand at the event coverd some 1800 square metres, which was put to use presenting and demonstrating a total of 15 new and existing products as well as topics from the fields of diagnostics, spare parts and services.

    Hybrid vehicle maintenance was a key focus for Bosch at Automechanika 2010. The company produces all the main products associated with hybrid vehicle technology and is now also making it easier for automotive workshops to perform maintenance on hybrid vehicles by supplying diagnostic systems, making the latest technical data available via its Esitronic workshop software package and providing the appropriate practical training.

    Bosch debuted the new FSA 050 handheld tester at Automechanika. This tool was developed specifically for working on high-voltage systems and communicates wirelessly with the basic series 7 FSA vehicle system analysis devices.

    Bosch also unveiled its new and efficient technical hotline — set up to help workshops that use the Bosch Esitronic workshop software package. In future, if the technical diagnostic process is proving difficult Bosch hotline experts will be able to use a remote programme to access Bosch testers directly and perform vehicle diagnostics via the Internet.

    Bosch also introduced its new maintenance and repair programme for commercial vehicles. The spotlight was on the new Bosch KTS Truck and KTS Truck 800 testers for commercial vehicle diagnostics.

    The control unit diagnostic tool KTS Truck and the associated Esitronic Truck software package have been developed specifically to address the needs of commercial vehicle workshops and complete the comprehensive Bosch portfolio of spare parts and testing technology for vans, heavy-duty trucks, buses and trailers.

    Bosch produces two different versions of the new control unit diagnostic tester for commercial vehicles: A KTS module for use with a PC or laptop already present in the workshop, and the KTS 800 Truck complete solution with Diagnostic Control Unit (DCU) — a powerful tablet PC also recently developed by Bosch.

    The new EPS 708 diesel test bench for testing common-rail injection pumps and injectors produced by Bosch and other manufacturers was demonstrated for the first time at the trade fair.

    A warranty rating is also possible for Bosch components. An integrated cooling system, electronic injection quantity measurement and a comprehensive self-diagnostic system help workshops to work with convenience and professionalism and are a simple way to get started with testing common-rail injectors using piezo technology.

    Another innovation on show was Denoxtronic 2 Retrofit — a special retrofit solution for diesel-drive vehicles that is unique in the aftermarket. The system can reduce NOx production by up to 90%.
